EasySocial
First off when you purchase an extension with your money you put your faith into the developers that they will answer your questions pertaining to that extension. Not only is this a great extension to build a community of like minded people but it also has top notch support that answers your questions any time of the day. They say they have online and offline support but in all seriousness this team of developers id dedicated and passionate about what they do and that is put out top Joomla extensions. Highly recommended.

eXtplorer
This is absolutely the best file management software you can find for the Joomla! backend. Not only is it simple to navigate through but the GUI (graphical user interface) is straightforward. Plus you can edit, rename, upload, and a lot more within the backend of your Joomla! installation. And it is free!

WordPress Blog for Joomla!
Where can you get a product that works correctly, has great support, and is reasonably affordable? Here! This is the product. These developers have created a application for WordPress that will interface with your Joomla CMS and it works. Support questions are answered within a reasonable time frame - if not right away. Andy and Collin are exceptional developers and understanding when it comes to supporting their product. Great job and many best wishes.

DOCman
Their design and capabilities are suitable if you know how to code - if you don't then you might as well look elsewhere. Plus I purchased this last year October 2010 and than all of a sudden in July 2011 they have changed Joomlatools to a Membership. So if you want any upgrades from any recent purchases like mine you have to pay an upgrade fee for 12 month support - I already paid. Terrible. Poor business management and greed ruins Joomla extensions. Goodbye Joomlatools.

Thanks for your review. I would like to clarify the change to a subscription model.

Previously customers bought an individual version of DOCman and got updates and support for that version. For example if you bought DOCman 1.5, you got support and updates for all DOCman 1.5.x versions.

With the new subscription service customer buy a subscription for a year 12 months and that subscription includes access to all our products and support service within those 12 months.

DOCman 1.5 customers continue to receive updates and don't need to upgrade to a subscription unless they want to get access to DOCman 1.6 for Joomla 1.7/2.5.

I hope this helps to clarify.

AntiCopy
I only rated it as good because there are still ways to copy the source code and easily retrieve paths to images or scripts. But still it should thwart at least 99 percent of the web surfer who pays a visit to your site. Nice job!

Hotspots Pro
I was looking for a way to integrate Google Maps into my JomSocial designed website. Even though JomSocial has its own Google integration - it is pretty basic. HotSpots answers the question and does more than I asked. Besides being multi functional the support from Daniel is A+. I asked a question in the forums that was csv related to the component and I was answered in a matter of hours. I am very happy with this purchase and I wish the developers the best as they continually try to improve on the functions.

PHP Image Editor Lite Joomla
2 words - excellent extension! Plus I must add some intellectual elaboration. This is a much needed part of the Joomla admin as a backend extension but it could work as a frontend extension as well. You do not know how many times I get images on my site that are 6MB and up and this extension is well needed part of the Joomla core. Many thanks to the developer for his ingenious efforts. Keep developing and learning your craft because you are an addition to this Joomla society.

ArtCats
This is a good module - does what it says but there is no uninstall or it does not register itself to be uninstalled if you find out you do not want to use it. Has a lot of features and a suggestion is to allow it to place more than just the title of the article but maybe a full article post with comments. Good luck to the developer.

Hi there! I'm not sure what you mean about there being no uninstall available for the module and faulting my module for that reason?

The only way I know of to delete a module is to go within the Install/Uninstall area within the Extensions tab, then going to the Modules area and selecting a module to uninstall (if you want to completely remove it). If you just want to delete an instance of the module you can do so within the Module Manager by checking the checkbox next to the module instance and then clicking on the Delete button. If a module isn't "registered" properly upon installation then you won't be able to use it so if you are able to use the module then you should definitely be able to uninstall it without any issue.

I'll look into your other suggestions though :-).

Thank you!

IF you are an old timer and like the CLI(Command Line Interface) instead of a GUI(Graphical User Interface ) style than you will love this extension. I am using the free version and enjoy inputting and updating the code as it is all there for you to configure. No buttons to press and to wonder what is going on. It brings the DB right ot you in the backend. Okay it maybe a little ancient in its design but it works for me and my needs. I am thinking of updating to the Pro version as the search feature is not in th free version. Good job to the programmers.

Simple RSS Feed Reader
This is a great module for Joomla. It is easy to configure and easy to deploy onto a website. The only concern I have is that it should be able to have a commenting system on it. After each article there should be a method to allow comments. I know that I could easily copy the article into Joomla's article backend and then deploy JComments but it would be nice to know how to add a commenting system to each article that your RSS over to your site. Otherwise this is an excellent module and best of all it is free. I would pay for the development of an advanced module if the developers were interested.

MooFAQ
I was looking for a FAQ extension that would not have me pulling my hair out of my head due to figuring out how it worked in the Joomla! admin back-end - but - MooFAQ sweetly cuddles my brain cells and it works with a little coaxing. Easy setup and follow through. If you do have a question the forum is an excellent place to ask because you will get a response immediately. That is if the developer is not sleeping. A fantastic extension that should be part of the core Joomla! installation.

CB Captcha
I give this an excellent for the added security it gives to your CB website. The back end settings are well noted but I do have a suggestion. There is no refresh button that I can see that could be placed next to the captcha image - this would be in case someone could not understand the captcha image. Is this a consideration from the developer? Otherwise I deem this extension a must have for any CB website owner.

Pro Magic Audio Player
I would have given it 5 stars but there seems room for improvement on this extension. Even though it is great to implement into your website and that you have many ways of putting multiple players into your website - I wish there was a way for the end user to pick the MP3's that you are showing them and they could make their own playlist. If there is a way to do this I would appreciate the help but as far as look, feel, support I would have to say excellent. Just wish for more functionality for the end user who visits your site.

ChronoForms
Even if you have limited coding experience with Joomla this form is for you. If you know how to read instructions you can have a form up and running on your site within minutes. And if you run into an issue the Chrono guys have a forum and help. I sent an email at 2am in the morning and received a reply from Chrono guys within 2 hours. It is fully extensible - meaning you can code your forms in Dreamweaver and import the code into Chronoforms. I am extremely happy I found this form - it is well worth the amount I paid. If you own lots of websites like me - buy the unlimited version - it is worth it.
